DWP requesting more info

AbsentElk Member Posts: 2 Listener
edited April 2019 in PIP, DLA, and AA
I started a PIP claim about 2 weeks ago and have just received a letter from the DWP asking for information to confirm my status while living in the UK.
They requested a Passport, travel documents and any letters from the home office.
I was born and have lived in the UK my whole life, I have a UK passport but haven’t left UK in over 10 years so it’s no longer in date.
So the things they’re requesting I don’t have and are mostly irrelevant to me.
Is this standard practice and what should I do? Send my out of date passport? Call them up?
Has anyone had experience of this?
